Converse Teams Up With The Gorillaz

Submitted by on November 16, 2011 – 1:51 pmNo Comment

Converse has joined forces with the Gorillaz to launch a footwear collaboration celebrating the 10th anniversary of the animated group’s self-titled first album.

Launching in February next year, the styles from the collection combine the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star silhouette with graphic prints by the band’s co-creator, award-winning designer Jamie Hewlett (the design above is inspired by the cover art from their debut). The partnership with Gorillaz, an act whose unique sound of alternative rock, hip-hop, electronic and pop music has seen them sell over 15 million records worldwide to date, will also include a Converse “Three Artists. One Song” music collaboration that will coincide with the launch of the collection.

“To converse: the exchange of thoughts, feelings or ideas. That’s what Gorillaz are all about, working and collaborating and exchanging ideas with other artists and global communicators,” says the band’s drummer, Russel Hobbs. “I couldn’t think of a better bunch of people to help celebrate our decade in the business than the good people over at the Converse shoe company. Plus I’ve been wearing my Chuck Taylor’s since forever.”

The Gorillaz’ Singles Collection: 2001-2011 will be released on November 28. The full Gorillaz Chuck Taylor All Star collection will be revealed in February and available nationwide and globally at select retail stores and online.
